This week TMI Tuesday takes its cue from the world of psychology and sociology, which both deal with behavior.
1. Catharsis – What behavior or activity do you do to achieve catharsis.
Weep and Sob, self destruct, sex, rage, etc etc.
2. Self-affirmations was made famous by Saturday Night Live character Stuart Smalley (now Senator Al Franken): “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and gosh-darn it, people like me.” What self-affirmation do you say/or should you say to yourself?
I don’t self-affirm. I’m not quite at the self actualization part of the pyramid yet. I suppose I should, it might make me a better person, except it’s pretty hard to look in a mirror these days.
3. “I knew it all along.” What did you know all along?
That this is all there was.
4. Daydreaming. About whom or what was your last daydream?
Whom? Naturally it was about Sir. When is it not? Tsk.
What? I was imagining myself in a different country.
5. We all have fears. What fear (real or improbable) have you taken steps against to protect yourself.
I fear being abandoned. Because of this… when I feel people or imagine people pulling away, I tend to shoot first and ask questions later—I usually try to ditch them before they ditch me.
6. Relationship churning–How many on-again off-again relationships have you been in? Why would you say you that you repeat this behavior?
Exactly zero. I don’t play that shit.
Bonus: Self-monitoring is the ability to both observe (or measure) and evaluate one’s behavior. It is an important component in human behavior that aids one to measure their behavioral outcomes against a set of standards. What sort of self-monitoring do you do on a regular basis?
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.
